The Franklin Emergency Communication Center has begun to accept text (SMS) messages for those in need of help who may find it safer to text than to place a call. Text-to-911 is NOT meant to replace a voice 911 call in an emergency; but can provide a different method of contact in an emergency situation where it may be safer not to speak. For further details and questions, see Text-to-911.
As a result of the State of Emergency due to the COVID-19 Virus, and to maintain social distancing, citizens experiencing the need to report non-emergency incidents to the Franklin Police Department can do so by filling out the Online Request for Police Services form. Once the form is submitted, an officer will contact the citizen via telephone to gather further information for a follow-up investigation, if necessary. If a crime is currently in progress or if this is an emergency, dial 9-1-1.
The Franklin Police Department recognizes that some members of our community may have special needs or may react differently when coming into contact with police officers or firefighters during an emergency situation. The Special Needs Registry is available for all residents requiring special needs resulting from a physical, emotional, or medical condition which will assist emergency responders in providing a more informed response to those with special needs during an emergency.
Residents and business owners can help in combating crime by registering their video surveillance system with the Franklin Police Department through the Camera Registry Program. The Police Department will NOT have direct access to your camera surveillance system, but would simply request your help with any potential video evidence.
Please wait while we gather your results.

The Franklin Police Department has teamed up with Crime Reports, a web service that allows citizens to view up-to-date information on nearly all police calls for service. This service maps incidents and allows people to see exactly what has transpired in their neighborhood on a daily basis. There is a 24-hour delay in uploading of the information. Please note that some activity will not be displayed either because it is part of an ongoing investigation or is sensitive in nature. To avoid identifying victims, all crime addresses have been rounded to the block level.
